- Growing Instructions:Sow three or four seeds into a 9cm pot of seed compost and keep warm in a propagator or on a sunny windowsill. Once seedlings have produced three true leaves, pot on individually. Once all threat of frost has passed, harden off carefully and plant into the final growing site allowing 60cm between plants. Protect young plants against slugs. It will help if you make small ridges of soil where you plan to grow your cucumbers and plant into the top to help water drain away from the stems and avoid rotting.

- Harvest: July to October
- Approximate quantity: 10 seeds.
